US Department of Education Issues Awards for Model Demonstration Projects

TPSID Grants Awarded

The US Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education, has awarded the 2020-2025 Transition and Postsecondary Education Program for Students with Intellectual Disabilities (TPSID) grants.  Through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, grants were awarded to to twenty-two colleges and universities in sixteen states to enable them to create or expand high quality, inclusive model comprehensive transition and postsecondary programs for students with intellectual disabilities. 

To learn more about the funded projects, you can review the abstracts submitted by each grantee that summarized their plans for their project over the next five years.

Think College at the University of Massachusetts Boston was also funded to continue its work as the National Coordinating Center.  We look forward to working with all these grantees in the coming years to ensure all students with ID in the Unites States  have access to high quality inclusive higher education opportunities that lead to positive life outcomes.  To learn more about NCC plans for the next five years, review our abstract.
